One Night. That's all it was supposed to be.

Reeling from the sudden loss of her sister, Haddie Montgomery has sworn off relationships. All she wanted from Beckett Daniels was a sexy distraction to help her escape her pain for just a little while....There weren’t supposed to be any strings attached—so why can’t she shake the memory of that unforgettable night from her thoughts? Or the taste of his kiss from her lips?

No matter how hard Haddie tries to forget about him, Becks relentlessly tries to prove that she should start living for today. But she is determined to avoid romantic commitment, and she can always use her ex-boyfriend’s reappearance to help snuff out the slow burn within her that Becks has sparked....

Or will fate force her to realize that this kind of connection doesn’t come along very often and a chance at love is worth the risk?

My Thoughts: 

I became an instant fan of K. Bromberg last year when I devoured her Driven series in one sitting. I was thoroughly engrossed by this emotionally charged read about two broken souls that find each other by a chance encounter. It was a romantic thrill ride full of exhilarating frustration and sexy times, not to forget Colton Donovan. I did not think that K. Bromberg could out do herself, but thankfully I was wrong, wrong, wrong. 

"Are we or aren't we?" K. Bromberg SLOW BURN

SLOW BURN starts of smoldering with the secondary character's Haddie and Becks from the DRIVEN trilogy getting down to nitty gritty of things. Fueled by an emotional day of witnessing her best friend marry the love of her life and the recent death of her beloved sister, Haddie throws herself at best man and sexy southern charmer Beckett Daniels. As for Beckett he has long admired and lusted after Haddie Montgomery but kept a safe distance. Yet, it did not take long for Haddie's charms to win him over and soon their "no strings" encounter becomes the thing neither one of them can forget nor I for that matter. Hotness!!

"No Strings....YEAH! She didn't say a fucking thing about rope" K. Bromberg SLOW BURN

What I enjoyed most about this story was the fact that Beckett recognized that there was something special about his time with Haddie and he did not shy away from it. His unwavering and up front approach was refreshing. Beckett seemed to know exactly when let his southern charm and wit command the situation or when to step in and take charge. I could not get enough. As for Haddie! Oh Haddie. I've admired that saucy minx and her potty mouth since the first time she showed up on the page. Her family history and witnessing her sister die before her very eyes only made Haddie want to dull the pain of reality and run.  So, when you bring these two characters together you are in for a bumpy ride but it is worth all the dips, spins and breath catching moments. And can I say that the VOO DOO is still in effect and the sex magic between these two is scorching hot!
SLOW BURN is an emotionally charged story that completely owned me form the very beginning. When I read the Driven series I instantly saw the potential for Haddie and Becks and was so happy to see their story but it was not an easy one to witness. I don't want to spoil any of it for fans of this series but I was completely thrown off my guard with their story. I had not expected the deep and utterly emotional story that their relationship offered but I could not have wanted it any other way. It only made me treasure their story and made me an a total Beckett Daniels fangirl and I thought no one could outshine Colton Donovan, wrong! Read it and you will love it, I guarantee it.

"It's okay to use my boy when you need strength. His back won't break if you do, but his heart just might if you don't" K. Bromberg SLOW BURN

Fans of the DRIVEN series will need to read this story like ASAP. SLOW BURN by K. Bromberg is everything that a romance reader could ever want to invest in. Haddie and Beck's love story is full of all the feels and sex magic that will make your heart swell to overflowing. Yes, it is that incredible and you will not want to miss this amazing love story that will make you run through a box of tissues and a pint of ice cream.
